The event had teams of different cultures including three Indian sides, a Sir Lankan side, a Pakistan and a Tennant Creek side. It was a poor start from India who found themselves in trouble early when Alice Springs Cricket Association cricketer of the year Megha Hettige dismissed their key player Randeep Kalyan first ball. Quick wickets followed as India slumped to 4/33 after just five overs. A partnership between Gagandeep Singh (28) and Suni (48) got the team into a respectable position with Suni leading his side through to a competitive 150. In response, Sri Lankas batters got off to a flyer taking full advantage of the fielding restrictions. Praven Kumar and Barthiya Janappriya put on 45 before Janappriya lost his wicket. India would have felt they were back in the game when they collected Ishan Heraths wicket soon after. Those hopes were dashed when Rangana Mallikarachchi (20 not out) combined with Kumar (75 not out) to see the Sri Lankans home. Mustafain Hussain of the Pakistan team received the Batter of the Tournament award after scoring 392 runs. Sri Lankas Barthiya Janap priya, 21, collected honours for the Emerging Player of the Tournament. Sri Lankas dynamic wicket keeper Praven Kumar col lected the Fielder of the Tournament while Megha Hettige (Sri Lanka) picked up the AllRounder award The Top Wicket Taking was jointly won by Rajesh Muniraj (India Blue) and Yasitha Sri Lanka triumphs in Harmonys first cultural pitch Malalasekara (Sri Lanka) after collecting 11 wickets a piece. The Man of the Series was Indias Randeep Kalyan. NT Crickets regional manager for Central Australia, Alister Stevic, said the objective of the tournament was to encourage and introduce new markets to cricket. It was pleasing to see many of the Harmony Cup cricketers registering with clubs in the regular Alice Springs Cricket season as well as undertaking the Level 1 umpires course. The tournament couldnt happen if it wasnt for the hard work of each teams representatives. he said. The tournament has been challenging at times however it was obvious each team ... gained a greater appreciation for one anothers cultures. The Sri Lankan team which won the inaugural Harmony Cup cricket tournament at the weekend. The tournament has been challenging at times. A L I S T E R S T E V I C CRICKET TASMANIAN female skyrunner Hanny Allston and longdistance runner Kieran OBrien from Brisbane have been crowned champions of Run Larapinta 2016. It was the second edition of the four-day, four-stage trail running race along the most spectacular sections of the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia. Centralians figured prominently, with Reuben McLoughlin finishing second male and third overall in the 135km event, while Brad White and Emma Kraft finished first male and second female in the shorter course of 80km. Once the action got under way on Friday night with a twilight night race, runners from across Australia and overseas made their way through 20-45km stages and 11-30km respectively in the two distance options (the longer course Malbunka and the shorter course Namatjira) to finish at Glen Helen Gorge on Monday. Following four big days out on the trail it was euphoria at the finish line for Allston, who had been apprehensive, not about the ascent of Mt Sonder (NTs fourth highest peak), but for the long open areas at the end. With Mondays fast time of four hours, 51 minutes, 26 seconds, Allston logged the fastest overall time for the event in 14 hours, 34 minutes and 24 seconds. I think the tough thing today is just the mentality that its quite a long way, and youre going to have tired legs, but by that point youve sort of accepted the fatigue, and it feels easier this day, she said. Whereas if you had to back up again tomorrow thatd be when itd get really tough. It is tougher than I thought, I think Id underestimated the roughness of the terrain in some areas. Its so arid and rough out here, and you feel quite remote, so it has a different sense of difficulty I think. Its just totally different to other events, the sense of satisfaction is pretty huge in this; when youve backed up four days in a row, I think you get a bigger buzz. When you know that youre on the last day, it just gives you this drive just to find the finish line, and you know everyones going to have that tired euphoria at the end theres no way you want to miss out on that once you get to day four, youre going to get through no matter what. Its been awesome, and Id recommend it to anyone to have a go. Allston led Melbournes Bernadette Dornom, and Eibhlin Fletcher who locked away times of 17:33:24 and Going the distance worth it 18:37:24 for the four days overall to take second and third place in the Malbunka. After winning the Chifley Alice Springs Resort Stage 1, Brisbanes Kieran OBrien managed to recover his lead on Monday to become overall Malbunka winner, with another win in the Tourism NT Stage 4. OBriens overall time was 15:22:01. But not without a good challenge from fellow strong frontrunners Reuben McLoughlin and Nicholas Guz (Melbourne) who took Stage 2 and 3 respectively to finish in second (15:42:58) and third (16:27:54) overall. As the short-course runners filed across the line on day four, it was local Alice Springs Bradley White who claimed the stage and the overall win in the Namatjira, in an accumulated total time of 8:16:48. White beat Benjamin Billy and 2015 winner Laurent Rossignol, who finished in 9:04:57 and 9:13:35 respectively. The womens short course saw an exciting battle between Alice Springs champ Emma Kraft (2015 Namatjira winner) who took Stage 1, and Elizabeth Dornom, twin sister of long course runner-up Bernadette. Dornom won Stage 2 on Saturday, Stage 3, by margin of just 27 seconds to Kraft, but extended her lead on Monday with a win by four minutes in Stage 4, locking in an overall time of 8:35:50.
